Just A Truck: 1975 International Pickup

1

You won’t win any beauty prizes with this truck, at least in it’s current state, but you will have an honest pickup that looks the part! Located in Princeton, North Carolina, this barn find features a rebuilt 304 engine (no telling when it was rebuilt, though) and a recent tuneup and brake work. However, the seller states that the carburetor still needs some work to make it run well. It’s equipped with power steering and power brakes, and with an asking price of only $1,100 there’s some room to spend a little money. The truck is advertised here on craigslist if you are interested. Anyone have a spare tailgate hanging around?

    I love these old IH trucks because of their honest and anonymous looks.

    I believe, this was the last year for the pickup, (although, the Scout soldiered on for a few more years) These were miserable vehicles, and sales had dropped to almost nil, and were discontinued. I had nothing but bad luck with any IH product after say, late 60’s. Drove many Loadstar trucks with this motor, and they were awful. My old man had a 70’s Travelall, that he didn’t keep long. It’s a shame too, as IH products of the 40’s -60’s, were just the best vehicles. Some people liked these, but they couldn’t hold a candle to the other truck makers. Funny, the owner says it needs carb work. Every IH V-8 I drove, wreaked of gas, and stalling and stumbling were an inherent problem. I wish the new owner the best of luck.

    We used to say that IH kept the crates they shipped the ’68 and older trucks in and started selling them as trucks in ’69. My Dad had a ’69 Crew Cab 1200. It had a 392/Auto and went quite well, if you could keep gas in it. Dad said it was the thirstiest truck he ever owned. I thought it was the ugliest truck he ever owned. I don’t know what the designers were thinking back then. It seems that they designed and built trucks that were second to none until late ’57. The handling went right out the window with the A and B-series. It sort of redeemed itself in ’61 then the designers started drinking their own bath water in ’69. But now, the later Binders are making a comeback, sort of like the Edsel…
